Remember at the Golden Globes, when Tina Fey told serial dater Taylor Swift to “stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son,” Sam? That was a pretty amazing moment. So you can imagine how thrilled we were to relive it with the elder Fox himself last night at a book party for Ann Leary’s The Good House. Would Fox approve of a Sam/Taylor (Saylor) love connection? we asked. “No. No … Just back off,” he told us. “I don’t keep up with it all,” he said. “But Taylor Swift writes songs about everybody she goes out with, right?” Right! “What a way to build a career.” So if Swift showed up to a Fox family dinner (possibly wearing her fox sweater), how would he react? “I wouldn’t even know who she was,” he said. But it’d probably dawn on him after the breakup song hit the radio. “Yeah, exactly,” he said. “‘Sam, You Piece of Shit.’ Oh … that was the girl you brought home!”
